BOOK YOUR SESSION
We begin by choosing a date and time for your session that works best for you and your dog. The booking process starts with a pre-session questionnaire. You can choose days and times that work best for you and include any special requests. This also helps me learn more about your dog and what makes them special. I can then customize the session to your needs; what you would like to achieve, how you would like to display your images, and what products you are interested in. Followup questions will help fine tune your session to assist us in providing a fun and exciting portrait experience with beautiful images.
CONFIRM YOUR SESSION
Once the questionnaire is submitted, you will receive a list of available dates that fit your request. Once the date is chosen, you will receive a portrait agreement electronically (via DocuSign) to review and sign. Then we will send out an invoice for your session fee via Paypal. (payment may be made using a Paypal account, or with any major credit card. Checks are also accepted.). Upon receipt of the signed agreement and session fee, your date is secured.
We begin by taking the time to let your dog relax and get to know the space. We spend the first 10 minutes or so just letting your dog become accustomed to the studio environment, the equipment, and me! We work with controlled studio lighting as well as simple props and backdrops. Our focus is on your dog having a wonderful and relaxing portrait experience, so your dog can shine. We work at a pace that suits your dog and take frequent little breaks to make sure you and your dog don’t get tired or stressed.
VIEWING AND ORDERING APPOINTMENT
Viewing appointments will be scheduled approximately 1 to 2 weeks after the session. This is the time when you see all your final images and make decisions on your portrait order. The ordering appointment takes place at the studio, where you will be able to check out a variety of samples of the many products available and see your images projected from a calibrated monitor onto a projection screen. We’ll help you sort through the images and make final decisions on what will look best with your decor and what fits your lifestyle. Specializing in custom Eco-products, we take the guesswork out of choosing ethically and environmentally friendly products. We have carefully selected the perfect product line that balances Eco-minded art with exceptional archival quality. To learn more about our product line, check out the Products page under “Info” in the menu above. We will work with you to choose your custom artwork, so you won’t be overwhelmed with options. It’s a good idea to consider your budget before the viewing appointment, so that we can help you make the most of it when choosing products that are right for you.
In about 2-6 weeks you will collect your order (2-4 weeks for prints, up to 6 weeks for handcrafted items). Then it’s time to enjoy your artwork and let it bring a smile to your face each day!
